             abstract = "Porous boron-doped diamond (p-BDD) electrodes of high-surface-area 
                         have been prepared on vertically aligned carbon nanotube 
                         substrates, and their electrochemical performance has demonstrated 
                         promising results for application in electroanalysis. The 
                         electrochemical features of the p-BDD electrodes were investigated 
                         and compared with those of a conventional flat BDD electrode 
                         (f-BDD). From cyclic voltammetry studies performed for the 
                         electrochemical probes [Fe(CN)(6)](3-) and 
                         N,N,N',N'-tetramethyl-para-phenylenediamine (TMPD), a fast charge 
                         transfer was observed at the p-BDD/electrolyte interface. For the 
                         [Fe(CN)(6)](3-) redox probe, the heterogeneous electron-transfer 
                         rate constant (k (0)) value obtained for p-BDD was 10.9 times 
                         higher than that obtained using a f-BDD electrode. Moreover, the 
                         p-BDD electrodes also gave a smaller peak potential separation, 
                         Delta E (p), and larger analytical signal magnitude for different 
                         biomolecules, such as dopamine (DA), acetaminophen (AC), and 
                         epinephrine (EP). These set of results demonstrated that the p-BDD 
                         electrode is a suitable candidate for applications in 
                         electroanalytical chemistry.",
